Weekly Ephemera #63

  • Public art at the new Gene Leahy mall.
    This weekend we went to the Wife's family reunion.  It was lots of fun.  Over fifty family members showed up.  The day of the reunion (Saturday) turned out to be a perfect day in Haverhill, IA.  The temperatures were comfortable and the humidity was relatively low compared to the rest of last week.  We ate good food, enjoyed great company, explored the historic blacksmith shop, and did some shopping in the eclectic town antique/junk store (which was opened just for us and we made it worth the owners while).  My only issue with the weekend was I ate too many carbs (totally my fault).
  • I walked twice this week.  I would have walked more except for the over 100℉ (38℃) heat index we had most of the week and my health issue.  I only walked 2.9 miles (4.7 km) but one of the walks was in the old market area of Omaha.  The Gene Leahy mall has been totally revamped and I walked around the new park to see how things have changed.  They've added a dog park, fire pits (waiting for that lawsuit when some kid sticks their hand in the fire), ping pong tables (the paddles and balls in the nearby box will probably vanish someday), and tons of seating (including tables and chairs that aren't tied down so will eventually start walking away in the middle of the night).  They added a lot of cool stuff.  The question I have is how long will some of this stuff last.
  • I was feeling better but my health issue flared up again.  I'm not sure if there is a connection between walking and my issue or if it's just a coincidence but I will stop walking again until my doctor's appointment next week.
  • I finished "Columbo".  Time for me to find some other weird thing to watch on the boob tube.  I will probably re-up Netflix and catch up with some of the stuff there.
